What other guests say about our tours and locals
"An easy hike was exactly what I needed to counter all the eating Inhave been doing! Ruxandra was a fantastic guide. Very socialable and knowledgeable of the city. Her goal was to make sure. She had some fantastic restaurant suggestions to ensure I got the most out of my remaining time in Barcelona. Highly recommend!"CodyAbout local RuxandraBarcelona, November 2023
Progressive dinner and dancing!
"Gonzalo planned a wonderful night for our group of 6. We had tapas at two different out of the way places with traditional vermouth drinks, stopped by a bakery for pumpkin empanadas and, after a basic Bachata and Salsa dance lesson, he and his girlfriend Rebecca, accompanied us to an intimate bar to try out our newly learned dance skills. Food was fantastic and dancing was so much fun. I highly recommend this outing for a group or couple. We made memories that will last a lifetime❤️ "KRISTENAbout local GonzaloBarcelona, September 2023
Fun, Interesting and Delicious!
"We spent a super afternoon with Philippe as he taught the children (and us!!) how to make a traditional paella. Philippe was great with the children, keeping them interested and on-task. He shared a wealth of information not just about the food, but about Catalan culture and traditions as well. The meal was delicious and the children all felt a sense of pride and accomplishment having prepared dinner for us all. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend it to other families! :)"JessAbout local PhilippeBarcelona, August 2023
Authentic family friendly cooking class
"Philippe was a fabulous host and great with our kids as they prepared, cooked and served our authentic Spanish meal. The food was absolutely amazing and the experience of cooking with a local in their own home was the cherry on top. Would definitely recommend for families with young kids, thanks again for an unforgettable experience "JonathanAbout local PhilippeBarcelona, July 2023
Best kids experience in Barcelona
"If you have any kids in Barcelona, do this tour. We were in Barcelona for a month and Hannah made this maybe the most memorable experience for our kids and family for ages 2,5 & 9. All three were fully engaged both in the museum and the art activity after the museum tour. It was fun for all of us, and Hannah was fantastic. I cannot recommend this tour enough and was absolutely a highlight for all of us. Thank you!"BenAbout local HannahBarcelona, July 2023
Ryan about Hannah
"Hannah was great! Taking 2 children to a modern art museum sounds like a recipe for disaster to keep them engaged, but Hannah did a great job giving them a scavenger hunt and educating us along the way. This felt more like a casual family trip to a museum with painting outside after, not like a formal/stiff tour and our kids definitely appreciated it."RyanAbout local HannahBarcelona, July 2023
Passion - Experience - AMAZING - 100%
"When we travel, we value seeing a city/culture through the eyes of a local. The experience that Philippe granted our family (My wife & I, + 10yo daughter and 7yo son) is one that we will never forget. Imagine spending a few hours with a world traveler who opens their home and his heart to his guests. His passions are shared and his ability to engage my kids was priceless. We haven’t even begun to talk about the INCREDIBLE Paella yet!! My daughter said “I didn’t think I was going to like it… but I am sure glad that I tried, it was delicious!” My wife and I exchanged dozens of glances and smiles with hearts full of gratitude for the experience we were in. This is a 10/10 mist do with your kiddos!"JasonAbout local PhilippeBarcelona, July 2023
Enchanting and Memorable Experience!
"We had the most amazing time with Philippe, our Withlocals host in Barcelona! My wife, our 9-year-old daughter, and I joined Philippe for his Paella Workshop for kids, and it was an absolute blast. First of all, Philippe's home is an absolute hidden gem in Barcelona. It's like stepping into a magical wonderland. The moment we walked through the door, we knew we were in for something special. Philippe himself is an awesome human being. Not only is he an incredible artist, but he's also a fantastic cook and teacher. He made the workshop so engaging and fun for Naila. She got to learn how to make a full Spanish dinner, from Pan con Tomate to a mouthwatering seafood paella and a heavenly Crema Catalana. Naila did most of the work herself, and she was so proud of her creations. What made the experience even better was the fact that we got to sit down and enjoy the delicious meal we had prepared together. As we savored each bite, Philippe shared some great stories and we had wonderful conversations. The sangria he made was the cherry on top – absolutely delicious! Before we left, Philippe even gave Naila a printed recipe to take home as a souvenir. It was such a thoughtful gesture that made her day. She's already planning to recreate the dishes for our family and friends back home. All in all, I can't recommend Philippe enough as your host and guide in Barcelona. It was not only a cooking class but also a heartwarming experience filled with laughter, good food, and great company. If you're in Barcelona and looking for a unique and unforgettable activity, don't miss the chance to spend time with Philippe. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!"SherifAbout local PhilippeBarcelona, July 2023
Valuable and Fun Experience
"Our time with Philippe was both educational and fun for all. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the interaction with Philippe. He was very engaging and light hearted. He brought out courage and intrigue in the process of cooking and learning about traditional Spanish spices and folklore. A great time was had by all. Highly recommend! "ErinAbout local PhilippeBarcelona, June 2023
